We are always on the lookout for new volunteers with great ideas and an interest in community radio
Our goal is to find volunteers who want to be involved with the station and with the Asheville community as a whole. It is very important to know that at it’s heart, Asheville FM isn’t just a radio station, it is a service to our community. We are always looking for people who are interested in participating in this very important aspect of the station, in addition to becoming an on-air DJ.
So, you wanna be a DJ?
To become a DJ at Asheville FM, you must first be an active volunteer in any one of the many departments here at the station. Asheville FM provides on-air training to it’s volunteers, and allows DJs in training to shadow experienced on-air personalities as part of the learning experience. The exciting last step in the Asheville FM DJ training course is hosting your own episode of the Sandbox Hour or Night School. Once those steps have been completed, you can qualify to become an approved substitute DJ here at Asheville FM. A minimum number of volunteer hours are required before you can apply to host your own show. We revamp the broadcast schedule twice a year (Spring and Fall).
Different ways to help.
We have many needs and many ways for you to help. Some people want to help only occasionally (for instance, during our fund drives) and some want to be more involved. We can work with your interest level and availability.
How to get started:
All new volunteer prospects are invited to attend an informational orientation meeting at our station. We offer these group meetings at various times each month. These meetings generally last about an hour, and we will explain our station history and explain how to get started as a volunteer and/or a DJ. You may also have an opportunity to meet and talk to some of our department heads.
